Just wanted to confirm that the $100/$10 or $200/$20 deal is dead.  I should have jumped on it sooner...

But!  The Dollar General 15% off GameStop gift cards is still active.  So I bought a large amount there and then bought Steam gift cards from GameStop and used up my coupons, to include my $10 renewal.

So now I have a good chunk in my Steam wallet for my Steam Deck next year and netting a quick 30% return on investment.

Awesome post, thanks for the info.

Did anyone order games from the retro restock the other day and actually have them ship out? I placed a couple of orders and all of them are "preparing for shipment" with one item "awaiting product availability". One of the orders had a non-retro item which has already shipped.

 

Is order fulfillment/shipping super slow now that it's "holiday season"?

Thank you, I was just about to ask about this as well. I've got a final list of PS3 games that I want to buy, and they only take PSN funds as payment now.

That's smart.  I end up paying MSRP on the store to fill out my PS3 catalog of mainly PS1/PS2/PS3 digital only exclusives.  You're going at it a better way.

I will be going back out to top off another card to take advantage of my $5/month PUR coupon to get $20 Steam cards for effectively $12.75 a pop.  I am lucky to have a GameStop on the way when I go into the office, so its an easy thing to do for me.

Yeah, I bought a gift card last year when Dollar General had them discounted, and used them with my monthly $5 on PSN credit every month. Gonna do the same with eshop credit now.

I don't think eshop is said to be part of the 15% off going by the list he posted.

Believe he should be able to purchase the eshop credit using the discounted Gamestop gift cards.

Between the sale on the Series X|S expansion storage ($187) and 15% off Gamestop GC's at Dollar General, I decided to go ahead and buy it. I know the 2TB is coming out soon-ish, but $400 is out of my price range for extra storage.

Your margin would probably be so small, it likely isn't worth the effort.  Unless you can corner some PS5s or Xbox Series X bundles, you're likely going to do a lot of work for only ~5% return.

Find a recent GS exclusive game, but it and sell on eBay. Stubbs is a good one and you’ll sell it for more than it costs at GS

Stubbs is on sale for $17 on PS4 and being sold at around $25 on eBay.  After tax, fees, shipping, and time, you're likely better not even doing anything unless it's just part of your routine.

The Switch version sells for around $40, but is also $26.  A lot of work for maybe $10. 

You do you, though.

Great purchase for those of us sitting on tons of trade credit. Never had more than 1TB on a console so 2TB should be enough for a while

Are there still issues with online coupons redeemed with points? Haven't redeemed an online coupon in years.

I'm really struggling on getting this or a Series S.  Anyone have a multiple Xbox setup in their space and recommend that as an option?

From what I've heard, still not working. In store coupons should work though. But I've been sitting on 70,000 points since they did the discount on them during the holidays a few years back.

Having a one x is probably the better bet. That’s why I kept mine incase I wanted to move around and play in other rooms. My whole thing with the series s is there’s no disc drive. Still don’t understand why they did this but whatever.

I'm not sure what you mean, but GAA was normally shrink wrapped when I purchased it new.  If it came in an outer bag with a fold-down seal, that's one of the better ways gs reseals games they call "new."
 
Regardless, your phrasing might be somewhat unkind to people living in certain communities by bringing them down to gamestop's level.


Meant heat shrink wrapped. I read in here that NS games have the worst consistency so was wondering if AA Chronicles was a game with shoddy factory shrinkwrap.

And fair enough point on word usage.

I think you’re talking about getting the memory card vs buying a Series S. If you typically play only a handful of games at a time, I would go for the the Series S. I expect the Series S will hold its value better over the next few years. Buying and selling storage space seems a sketchier second market.

Yeah, already have the Series X.  The S would be more for "family games" (Lego type stuff that typically has small installs), and Game Pass games.  I'm leaning towards that even though storage will continue to be an issue.

I think you will be fine with storage unless you literally play that many games simultaneously
